object approaching short blue waves
UBC Master of Fine Arts Graduate Exhibition 2015

Eric Angus, Jamey Braden, Anyse Ducharme, Jessica Gnyp, Michelle Weinstein

The Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery is pleased to present object approaching short blue waves, an exhibition of work by the 2015 graduates of the University of British Columbia’s two-year Master of Fine Arts program: Eric Angus, Jamey Braden, Anyse Ducharme, Jessica Gnyp, and Michelle Weinstein. This program is limited each year to a small group of four to six artists, which over the two years fosters different sensibilities developed within an intimate and discursive working environment. The artists in this year’s exhibition share an interest in aspects of materiality and the relationships between two and three dimensional work. The exhibition is presented with support from the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory at the University of British Columbia.

Tom Burrows

The exhibition by Vancouver/Hornby Island artist Tom Burrows presents work by the artist from his early career to the present. The exhibition is a timely refocusing of attention on an artist who has made an immense contribution to the development of art in Vancouver, not only as an artist but as an educator and activist as well—in 1975 he received a United Nations commission to document squatters communities in Europe, Africa and Asia, a work that is now in the Belkin’s collection. We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Vancouver Foundation, the British Columbia Arts Council and our Belkin Curator’s Forum members.

Ai Weiwei
New York Photographs 1983-1993

FILM SCREENING & LECTURE: Wednesday, November 12, 7 pm at The Cinémathèque

Ai Weiwei: New York Photographs 1983–1993 consists of 227 black-and-white photographs taken by the artist during the decade that he resided in New York City, his first time away from China. The photographs were personally selected by the artist from over 10,000 negatives that are housed at Three Shadows Center for Photography in Beijing and together represent a single work of art—no one image is more important than another. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Three Shadows Photography Art Center, Beijing and and Chambers Fine Art in New York and Beijing. It has been made possible with funding from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Belkin Curator’s Forum.

Mr. Peanut Campaign for Mayor 1974

Walter C. Koerner Library
1958 Main Mall

Between 1969 and 1974, Vancouver artist Vincent Trasov assumed the persona of the well-known Planters product logo Mr. Peanut as the framework for an ongoing performance art project. Trasov collected all things peanut and made drawings, photocopies, collages, photographs, videos, sculptures, and ceramics to illustrate how pervasive and potent the image of Mr. Peanut was in popular culture. Perhaps his most broadly public project was the Mr. Peanut Campaign for Mayor in 1974 that he devised with fellow artist John Mitchell. This exhibition, which consists of photographs, press material, and ephemera representing the campaign, is timed to coincide with the Vancouver municipal election that takes place on November 15, 2014. This exhibition is a collaboration between the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery and the Walter C. Koerner Library at the University of British Columbia, and is made possible with the generous support of the Audain Foundation. Art in the Library offers new perspectives on contemporary art by presenting art that questions our current perceptions about the world around us.

Special Collection
Acquisitions and Archives

The exhibition Special Collection: Acquisitions and Archives on view from June 14 through August 18, 2013 at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery features works from the permanent collection and archive that highlight some of the collecting streams that have evolved since the Belkin began to actively collect in 1995 following the transference of the University Art Collection to the Gallery. Now the third largest public collection of visual art in British Columbia, these streams offer a series of potential narratives—thematic, historical or even technical—that serve to tell the story of contemporary art in this part of the world. The exhibition is made possible with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts. We gratefully acknowledge the Canada Council Acquisitions Assistance program, the Morris and Helen Belkin Foundation, our Belkin Curator’s Forum members and the individuals who donate works of art to our collection.
